The Vibe

Thank You

I am so incredibly grateful for you all! You have continued to support me as I strive to build a business that I am passionate about and very much committed to.

I Am Very Proud That My Wife Is White: Says Black Man Hubert Davis

So my daughter’s college, UNC-Chapel Hill, made history this month. Long-time head basketball coach Roy Williams retired, and Hubert Davis was selected as the University’s new head coach. This decision was historic because Hubert Davis is the 1st African-American head basketball coach in UNC’s 232-year history. It took a university that heavily recruits African-American young…

Protect Your Energy, Literally

One of the many phrases we often hear these days is “protect your energy”. Seeing that as some great advice, I decided to visit an energy healer and literally protect my energy.

Dear Black Man, I See You

Welcome Harmonious Conditions

Who in the World is Big Sean

The other day I told you I watched Jay Shetty’s Big Sean interview and how it impacted me. Some of you in my age group were wondering who in the world Big Sean is. Having young children helps me stay up on who’s who in the “rap game” :-). Here are 3 of Big Sean’s music videos.…

It Is Meant For You To Be

I recently made a decision that was very difficult for me. I find that my most difficult decisions are because I struggle with accepting what I know to be true and being ready to productively push through the inevitable pain of transition. Because of my experiences, I believe that God, the universe, or whatever you…

It’s Another Relationship Question For You All

Hi all! I so enjoyed the feedback I got last week I decided to pose another relationship question this week. I am big on transparency. If I am honest and upfront in the beginning, that eliminates the possibility of an issue down the road. With that being said, I am becoming more selective about what…

She’s So Negative: There’s A Reason For That

Do Something Different: Wine and Paint Night

Oxytocin Anyone?

I always wondered why my mood drastically improves after one of my “highway driving singing sessions”. For me, a “highway driving singing session” involves a little more than turning the volume up and singing along.

“Bad Bitches” Have Bad Days

“Bad Bitches Have Bad Days” is the phrase that came into my head when I initially began thinking about this post.
